Abstract.  Tissues are characterized by a strong scattering of visible optical radiation, which prevents one from achieving deep-tissue imaging. We propose a computational imaging technique for the inference of specific macroscopic, spatial phase distribution features of the scattering media. The spatial phase distribution is reconstructed from several defocused intensity images. We empirically demonstrate the method by reconstructing the location of two fibula chicken bones, embedded within chicken breast tissue. The suggested technique is safe, using visible laser illumination, and noninvasive. It is also cost-effective since a simple optical system is used and the images are acquired using a conventional camera, and it does not require interferometric detection as well as direct access to the object in absence of the layer.
